Have just got a pair, my local bike shop with whom I've spent £1000's with gave my a decent price almost comparable to US prices.

Good wheels. Small brake track/side walls. Good quality hubs, however, they are so frekin' loud. Like Chris King loud. A riding buddy has them and I can't stand riding behind him when we are going down hill, drives me crazy.

I have Vigors which have the same hub internals as the Elans. (White Industries) When I was at bikemessenger's over the weekend he took mine appart and put some secret grease on the engagment thing-a-ma-jig and now it's not so loud. He could probably tell you what he put on there if he's reading.

If you want a quiet hub get some velomax/easton wheels.

I put a grease named Slick Honey in the pawls to quite them down. The grease is actually made for suspension forks but it works really good for this application.

I used walmart waterproof grease. Works perfect. Almost too quite.

I'm riding these and they're not too noisy for me. The wheels are very impressive, they are not deep aero wheels but the profiled rim and CX-ray spokes help make them quick. The braking surface is small but if you set the pads up properly, this isn't a problem. I can't notice much flex, compared to my Mavic Ksyrium wheels, there's little difference in flex when I'm sprinting in a big gear uphill. But the weight is great, they are light and this helps. I can't comment yet on durability and adjustability could be a problem but after 1000km or so, they're holding up fine.
